1750 built newly renovated house in medieval town centre of Durlach (near Karlsruhe, Heidelberg, Strasbourg)

Our house is located in Karlsruhe-Durlach in the old town centre near the pedestrian zone. Durlach is more than 800 years old, a smaller village with a lot of character. Our house, more than 250 yeras old, but newly renovated, is to be found in the heart of the city quite near to the central market place.
The house has 3 levels and roughly 160 m². 2 bathrooms. Outside you find 2 terraces to enjoy summer evenings and barbecue. The garden is not hugh, but closed (important for the little kids) with a fence. A larger sand pit is in the garden.
We have an additional 55 m² appartment (2,5 rooms, for max. 4 persons) in our house. This is available for rent.
Good shopping possibilities nearby (by foot, no need of a car in daily life!!!), very good public transport (tram, rail) to Karlsruhe.
Durlach, Karlsruhe and the whole region might be not so famous and world-wide known, but the overall quality of life is great. Often quite good weather, many interesting places to see (history, great cities or fun for the kids) and the neighbourhood to France make hoildays here quite attractive.
To spend holidays here there is no need for a car! Daily shopping can be done by foot or with our little bike lorry, everything is wihin 500 m distance. And the public transport system in the Karlsruhe area is fantastic, the light rail lines (tram, S-Bahn) connect Karlsruhe and Durlach with all main destinations such as Bretten, Heilbronn, Heidelberg, Mannheim, Stuttgart.... Durlach Station is as well only 500 m from our house away. But of course you can use your car and our large garage...
There are a lot Places of interest in the area, to mention only some: Heidelberg 45 km, French border (Alsace) 25 km, Speyer (Cathedral, grave of a lot of german kings, 60 km), Strasbourg 65 km, Baden-Baden 35 km, Stuttgart 70 km, Frankfurt 140 km.
There is a lot more to see of course. The Northern black forest starts here, it is a wine area (Baden and Pfalz) or the UNESCO world heritage Kloster Maulbronn is not far away. We have compiled a google maps for our exchange partners with all the places to see.
